Hi G,

Have you tried using this method instead?

   /// getPointerToFunctionOrStub - If the specified function has been
   /// code-gen'd, return a pointer to the function.  If not, compile  
it, or use
   /// a stub to implement lazy compilation if available.
   virtual void *getPointerToFunctionOrStub(Function *F);

If you can use it, this eliminates out the overhead in question,  
reducing it to an indirect function call.
